One handbag trend that has received a lot of runway attention from many many designers is the textured handbag. While sometimes it is nice to carry a soft leather pouch in the palm of your hand, other times it’s nice for the feel to be grittier. Designers and celebrities have been swearing by the textured trend this season, and predicted to hold strong for the next. The beauty about the textured bag is that the varieties are endless. Whether it’s sequins sewn directly onto the flap of your bag or a beautiful alligator skin such as in the Max Mara Fall 14/15 collections. The sizes can vary to fit your style preference or to combine more than one trend such as a textured crossbody. Over in Paris Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2015 collections, Dior featured a cult-worthy top handle woven and quilted chain strap bag to add a little flavor to the traditional Dior handbag. Also a street style fave, the ladies and gents attending these coveted shows also donned textured bags, so pick your media and throw it over your shoulder! It's worth an investment.

La Mochila, the word for 'bag' in Spanish, is handcrafted from genuine python and draws its inspiration from Colombia's native tribes - from the Wayuu to Arhuaca. A modern take on the traditional craft, the mochila allows for versatile styling options.The thin drawstring straps can be pulled closed for a hands-free backpack, or loosely knotted in the front for a comfortable shoulder bag. An external zipper allows for convenient access to daily essentials.
